After a fight and subsequent shooting in Deltona on Saturday night, Anderson Cantres, 25, and his younger brother, 17, were detained.
One of the victims told authorities that he was trying to grab a drink at the Circle K on Elkcam Boulevard when Cantres threatened to kill him by pointing a gun in his waistband. Cantres allegedly hit the victim in the face as he exited the petrol station, according to the victim.
